  • Jerome Simpson: Cut by 49ers
    By RotoWire Staff

    The 49ers released Simpson on Saturday, the team's official site reports. The 49ers have started the process of whittling down the roster from 90 to 75 players by Tuesday's deadline, jettisoning Simpson and fellow wideout DiAndre Campbell among others. Simpson experienced decreased usage as the preseason proceeded, following up five catches combined in the first two games with no stat line to speak of in Friday's exhibition against the Packers. The 30-year-old may have reached the end of his NFL life, but with 150 career catches to his name, another team may come calling in the coming weeks.

  • Simpson led all San Francisco wideouts with three caches (five targets) for 29 yards Sunday. While that stat line won't impress anyone, the catches and targets led all 49er receivers on a day where the passing game struggled as a whole. Simpson is currently competing for a starting job come Week 1 and his performance in the final three preseason games could heavily influence that decision.

  • Simpson stood out with a 40-yard touchdown during Monday's practice and head coach Chip Kelly didn't rule him out as an option in a "wide open" competition for receiver roles, according to Cam Inman of the Mercury News. Simpson had a strong showing during Monday's practice, catching a 40-yard touchdown from Blaine Gabbert. With many younger options in house, it was thought that Simpson would move down the depth chart or even miss the cut once the season begins. Kelly disputed this though, confirming that Simpson has been a player to watch early in camp and that San Francisco's competition for starting wideout roles are very open. Simpson has flashed ability over his seven-year career with off-the-field issues being his biggest flaw. If he were to win either the No. 2 or slot position out of training camp, he would see an immediate bump in value.

  • 49ers' Jerome Simpson: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Simpson (finger) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game San Francisco reports. Entering the 49ers' list of ailing Friday with a finger injury, Simpson will nonetheless be available to offensive coordinator Geep Chryst. However, Simpson has earned only 66 offensive snaps across four games this season.

  • Simpson caught two of his four targets for 20 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland on Sunday. Simpson's score came on a garbage-time touchdown late in the fourth quarter, so this performance should be taken with a grain of salt. He remains the fourth or fifth option on this less-than-stellar San Francisco offense, rendering him useless in most formats.
